HoSt to Construct Turnkey AD Facility at Stanton Recycling in UK

HoSt has scored a contract to construct the turnkey anaerobic digestion (AD) plant at the Stanton Recycling site in Ilkeston, UK. By treating mainly green waste and liquid food waste for Stanton Energy, the AD facility will annually produce more than 3,5 million Nm3 biomethane for gas grid injection and distribution.

Waste generation is increasing extensively worldwide, and millions of tons of waste is generated in the UK each year.

“We are proud to work together with Stanton Energy and look forward to supplying our technology to tackle this waste management challenges and contribute to achieving national energy transition goals”, says Sjaak Klein Gunnewiek, Sales Manger Biogas Projects at HoSt. This project is in line with the future UK government’s strategy of the Green Gas Levy which aims to increase biomethane ‘green gas’ production and injection into the gas grid.

Biowaste to energy

The biogas facility, equipped with digestate separation and pasteurization technology,will process up to 40,000 tonn of mainly liquid food waste and green waste by means of anaerobic digestion and membrane biogas upgrading technology. The annual biomethane production of 3.5 million Nm3 is sufficient to provide over 2,300 families with this renewable alternative of fossil natural gas. Distribution is arranged through Cadent’s gas grid, UK's largest gas distribution network.

“This is an important development for Stanton Recycling to address two key future-proofingagenda items, and we are extremely pleased to realize our first projecttogether with HoSt. Starting in October this year, we will process up to 40,000 tons of green waste, food waste, grease, grass, pruning waste and maize silage. Biomethane will be of importance to help decarbonize the UK. Based on our experience in Stanton we are keen to realize further projects together with HoSt in 2021 and 2022”, says Thomas Brückner, project developer of Stanton Energy. Stanton Recycling Limited provides in recycling and waste disposal solutions across Nottingham and Derbyshire.

Wide range of bioenergy systems

HoSt, headquartered in the Netherlands, offers a wide range of bioenergy systems, including maintenance service contracts, to ensure the success of a circular economy by producing renewable energy, solving waste management challenges, and creating valuable end-products from organic waste. HoSt has realized multiple biogas plants in the UK.
